Samba Network Neighborhood problem

Hello Eduardo,
If you post the [global] section
from smb1 and smb2, so we can see your ip addresses, subnet masks,
workgroup names, netbios names, etc, it might help, esp. if it is
a subnet problem.
The other thing you want to check is that nmbd is actually running
on smb2(the server you CAN't see).  nmbd is the daemon that is responsible
for host announcements, browsing, etc; maybe there is a problem on smb2
that is preventing it from running.
Hope this helps,

Subject: Samba Network Neighborhood problem

Hi everybody!
I'm new to the list, and I wonder if someone could help me out.
I got tow Samba Servers(smb1 and smb2)
smb1 acts like master browser, master domain etc...
smb2 is just another samba server.
smb1 works fine, I can see the resources from a Win2K client, just with a
double click in the network neihgborhood.

smb2 works not so fine, when I tried to access it from network neighborhood
I cannot see it, I see a lot of win9x, win2k clients and smb1, but cannot
see smb2.

If I do Start->Run->\\smb2 I can see the resources, even I can map those
resources to the Windows clients.

I already read browsing.txt, Using Samba and a lot of web pages trying to
find the answer, but I couldn't.

Anyone knows how can I make this Samba Server shows in the network

I'm using Samba 2.2.1a on Solaris 8

Thanx in advance.
